Book Description Houghton Mifflin c. 1970, Boston, Massachusetts, 1970. Hardcover; Fourth Printing. Book Condition: Very Good-. First Edition. Binding is clean, sound and unworn except for a very shallow dent in the top of the spine and dulled gold on the spine. Contents are almost as new. . No DJ. (LR-2-D) . ; 8-1/2" Tall, XXI + 409pp. Green cloth with black spine and front front lettering and gold accents. WAR. "It is not easy to catch the pervading spirit of a thousand soldiers who are manhandling heavy equipment, building bridges, sawing logs, picking up mail, keeping records, and waiting - although they don't know it - for the fury of the Ardennes counteroffensive, which will shatter the order of their routine into a million fragments, each a sharp particle that prods men into unanticipated patterns of behavior. But Janice Holt Giles has done so. Her descriptions of the 291st unit-family, of the Malmedy massacre and its effect on the Americans, of the German attack shifting into high gear, and, above all, of what happens to men in battle are among the best ever written. The 291st Engineer Combat Battalion was one of many units - infantry, artillery, armor, signal, quartermaster, medical, and the rest - which found themselves swept up into the maelstrom of the German Ardennes World War II counteroffensive. By virtue of their steadfastness and fortitude , they destroyed the German hope of victory. THE DAMNED ENGINEERS shows how they did it, and why. " .24 pages of b/w photos in two 12-page sections. Map endpapers plus 12 pages of maps in the text. Bibliography. Index. Bibliographical Notes. (Note from Wikipedia: The Malmedy massacre (1944) refers specifically to a war crime in which 84 American prisoners of war were murdered by their German captors near Malmedy, Belgium, during World War II. The massacre was committed on December 17, 1944, at Baugnez crossroads, by members of Kampfgruppe Peiper (part of the 1st SS Panzer Division) , a German combat unit, during the Battle of the Bulge. ) (LR-2-D).
